The development of a CPD model is of key importance at a time of significant change in the transformation agenda and integrated working model in the delivery of health, education, social care and early interventions to children and their families.

In the light of changing and sometimes inconsistent guidance from central government, Southampton City Council worked with the Open University Social Work Department to develop a model of CPD delivery for its integrated children's workforce.

The project consulted and gathered evidence from a range of interested groups including service users and carers, social workers and non-registered social care staff, commissioners, as well as senior managers within the authority.

The presentation will include details of the methodology used and will then go on to explore some of the themes and issues that have emerged from the research. Specifically, members of the research team will share initial thinking about appropriate CPD models for a children's integrated workforce and the principles required for the implementation.
